Quantum memory 'world record' smashed
A fragile quantum memory state has been held stable at room temperature for a "world record" 39 minutes - overcoming a key barrier to ultrafast computers. Having such robust, as well as long-lived, qubits could prove very helpful for anyone trying to build a quantum computer.
